Community for Ascension
First published on The Edge Magazine
Community is becoming more and more important as we raise our vibration to create inner and outer optimal changes. This shift in vibration is what many refer to as the Ascension process. Ascension is defined as raising our thinking and feeling state to one aligned with love, kindness, acceptance, and unity consciousness.
The reason why a strong sense of community is becoming more deeply valued is that our human reality is changing rapidly. This can feel scary when left on our own. However, it can feel like an exciting adventure if we are surrounded by a loving and supportive community.
Many of us have dreamed of being in supportive and enjoyable communities where we can continue to grow and evolve. Some people have found their community(s), while others are still searching. There are many kinds of communities to connect with including the friendly voices of change at The Edge Magazine. These types of communities are often inspiring and can help us think differently along with confirming that we’re not so different after all!
Community can be found within the workshops we take. Over the years, a large and active community has formed from taking my workshops and gatherings. The participants have created strong bonds of friendship where some talk daily and many have created professional collaborations and projects together. One such project is the School for Higher Consciousness which will more formally launch on the Summer Solstice – June 21, 2022.
Community Helps us Grow
Community gives us the confidence, safety, and stability we need to move into our best self. This is important since we are in the middle of a shift into a new reality. The old has been rapidly breaking down as people think about and create new ways of living, working, and being together. A new community model is emerging that believes everyone is important to the whole, and that each person’s gifts and skills are greatly needed and valued. The best kind of communities uplift each other so that we can all be our most optimal self, living our happiest life.
I’ve found that moving into higher levels of consciousness, the ascension process, can be challenging because we need to let go of outdated issues, patterns, beliefs, memories, and emotions. This makes room for something new and better to come in. Letting go can be difficult because, even if the mind is ready for the new, the emotions and body may not be ready. Typically, the body is the most resistant to change. The body is like a child who wants things to stay the same. However, Higher Self (our spirit that never dies) is all about expansion and growth and is our very best guide. The more comfortable we are with our Higher Self being in charge, the less resistance our mind, emotions and body will have with change.
A community of support, to affirm you’re on the right track, is also very helpful!
Many times, the spiritual community I am in, will check in with each other on a question or problem to see if others are getting the same answers. We all believe that the best answers come from our Higher Self. They have all practiced, for many years, on connecting with their Higher Self. Sometimes it’s helpful to have others double check something when feeling blocked. One way to assure you are connected to your highest guidance is to remember that the Higher Self’s answers never feel stressful or have a forced feeling to them. They feel free flowing and effortless.
During one of these check-ins, someone wanted to see if a potential new office was a good fit for them. She was ready to sign a lease. The community members checked-in with her Higher Self and many got that there was something in the lease’s fine print that was unusual and that she should look at it very closely. Sure enough, there were hidden expenses, she wasn’t told about, so she didn’t sign the lease.
The community also helps each other during positive and difficult times. A group chat was established so people can communicate with each other whenever they need support or want to share experiences. There’s always someone on the chat to listen, send positive energies and provide feedback.
Now, more than ever, we need to cultivate our spiritual community. Now is the time to transform your perceptions, and raise your thinking and feeling state, so you can create lasting inner and outer changes. Ascension is here, and the best ways to attain this higher state of consciousness, is through community. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!
